Exclamation Alternator / battery light!!!!!!

Hey guys, Ive got my battery light coming on and off. My battery is too weak to start my car but my car has never died while driving. Drove over 75 miles 2 days ago and it didn't die while driving. I can get a jump off of a buddy and it starts IMMEDIETY after hooking up. When I try to start the car it just clicks...

All of this started on Christmas when it snowed like 2 feet. And the temps have been in the teens to high twentys almost everyday since.

So what I need to know: is my alternator or voltage regulater going out?
: is it the cold weather?
: is my starter going out ?
Thx !
